A very cozy caffe in the center of Athens where you can taste and buy unique chocolates in a very vintage package. The place is very small (only 4-5 tables) so you must consider yourself lucky if you find a chair to seat.

I took a white hot chocolate and it was delicious and in a big cup. The place is really nice and cozy, quite small though. The price, however, seemed to me quite expensive.

Exarchia is in many ways Athens’ best-kept secret,
discovered by relatively few international visitors.
Located behind the main University and Polytechnic
buildings, it is unsurprisingly home to many students,
intellectuals and politicos. This is reflected in the

cover almost every inch of wall space. Some of the
best Athenian tavernas are located here, as well as
